Getting bangs is a full commitment. Once you get a fringe, you must take time to blow dry it and style it to keep it in good form. You can’t simply let go, unless you want a messy clump of hair pointing to different directions on your forehead. There’s one brilliant hack, though, if you want to get fringe temporarily: faux bangs. Read on to learn how to create faux bangs for days when you need them.
7 Simple steps in making faux bangs
Start with healthy hair
Put hair in a ponytail
Take a small section of hair from the outer part of your high ponytail. Bring this section to front, letting the tips cover your forehead like bangs. Pin this section on the top of your head to keep your bangs in place.
Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your ponytail to create texture. This will also help make your hair frizz-free.
Make a bun
Wrap the rest of your hair around the base of your ponytail to make a ballerina bun. Secure with bobby pins.
Style your bangs
Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on the tail of your comb and use this to style your faux bangs. This will make your fringe look like it falls naturally on your forehead.
You’re done! Faux bangs can add oomph to your everyday hairstyle. You can sport faux bangs to school or at work and surprise everyone with your new look. The best part? You didn’t have to go to the salon for a haircut to get this chic look.
You can make faux bangs if you want a trial run and see if fringe suits you. With this hair hack, you can undo your fringe when you don’t feel like having one. How convenient, right?
